This short for musical instrument sales was used on MST3K several years ago, and remains one of my favorite shorts from their collection. They have yet to release this episode and I was hoping I could find a copy of it here with the help of the fine folks who frequent this site.

Thanks in advance


Here is some info I was able to gleen from the web:

Plot: A prancing androgynous musical pixie shows an impressionable lad the importance of learning how to play a musical instrument.

Prod: Kling Film Productions
For: C.G. Conn Ltd.,
The World's Largest Manufacturer of Band Instruments
Dir: Phil Patton (The Snow Queen)
Scr: Marvin David
Cin: David Savitt
Ed: Arthur Ellis (His Double Life; The Scoundrel)

Mr. B Natural / Betty Luster
Buzz Turner / Bruce Podewell

This is not one of our films. It was licensed to the Comedy Channel for MST3K by Streamline Film Archives of New York, now known as F.I.L.M. Archives. I'm not aware of anyone else who possesses a print.

This short is available from Something Weird Video, on the collection "Campy Classroom Classics, Vol. 15":

The MST3K version is available from Best Brains on the tape "Mr. B's Lost Shorts":

This tape is on sale, so I'd buy it now, rather than later, because it may soon be unavailable.

Thanks everyone for your help, I think I will grab a copy of MST3K collection vol 6, as the MST3K treatment is really what I'm intrested in more than the original.
